Michigan residential building projects are typically a time full of excitement and anticipation. However, any number of things can go wrong, and homeowners are often disillusioned when building projects extend far beyond the expected occupancy dates. It is not uncommon for legal complications to arise, and in many cases, real estate litigation may be the only way to resolve such issues.
Regardless of whether the project management is handled by the property owner or an appointed person, careful planning is required. Aspects that will determine a successful build include a realistic timeline and effective budget management. To achieve this, close attention will have to be paid to the specifications of required materials, the performance of subcontractors and compliance with municipal construction codes. One of the principal concerns is a properly drafted contract.
